I would appreciate a more structured hands-on session (step-by-step walktrough, troubleshooting) and a proper handout with information about the device, scientific data, SOP - standard operation procedure - that you can implement back home, troubleshooting guide), etc..) . Overall, it was a very nice course but there is room for improvement (e.g. FTRD course by Ovesco in Dusseldorf, HotAxios course by Boston in Paris).

This course benefits people who are already familiar with over-stitch. May not help people who have no previous training with over-stitch. Good course. Thank you!
